Default Summer Vacation Writing Contest

Summer Vacation Writing Contest.

8 pages max.

Any genre. A murder mystery? A comedy? A murder mystery comedy? A vacation like 'Total Recall'?

Deadline September 1. Then a week of voting then the results.

You don't have to enter to vote. Notes will be very welcome too.

Send entries to marksomers0@gmail.com in formatted text please.

Four weeks for eight pages. It'll be a snap, and a good warm up to the Halloween Writing Contest.

Edited to add: First prize will be a one year subscription or a one year extension to DoneDealPro.

Good Luck

Welcome, Spartacus. Welcome to our most humble forum. And while this isn't as great as ludus. We try to make up for it in other ways.

While visiting please avail yourself of our great craftsmen who are more than able to polish your scrotum... I mean scutum. Damn you'd think by 73 B.C. they'd've got the spell checkers working. But no. Like it's too much to ask or something.

You also may want to get your gladius looked at too. You can never have your gladius looked at too much.

Again. Welcome.

Great, Southern. I look forward to reading your pages.

I wish I could have come up with something like your idea of writing around a song. That worked well. Maybe someday I'll steal that and use it here.

For now we just have to inspire. It is an unlimited amount.


Thanks.

It would be nice to think contestants will come flooding in at the last moment and break your inbox.
